“No, Bob. I’m saying you’ve already done plenty of things to regret. You just don’t know what they are. It’s when you discover them, when you see the folly in something you’ve done, and you wish that you had it to do over, but you know you can’t because it’s too late. So you pick that thing up, and you carry it with you to remind you that life goes on, the world will spin without you, you really don’t matter in the end. Then you will attain character because honesty will reach out from inside and tattoo itself all across your face. Until that day, however, you cannot expect to go beyond a certain point.”   Phil Cooper (Played by Danny DeVito in the Big Kahuna)

About Time Machine 

Time Machine

One day, I was talking to my then 7-year-old about life 
when she said, “I wish I had a time machine, so I could go back
and change all my regrets.”   The first lyric rang through my head as
I simultaneously analyzed what my deep thinker daughter must have
meant and how this rang true in my own life.   Honestly It wrecked me.

Did I have the courage to be honest about my own regret without making it too dark? 

Then I wrote the most honest lyric in the song, 
“It was the broken path that lead me to the life I wanted”. 

I hope that is true for you too.

Let’s build a time machine
and change up all our memories
There are a thousand things
I’d like to change
I wonder if I could or If I would
And what would stay the same
 What if the wrong things were erased?


If I could go back
And change all my regrets
would it be easy
would I remember what I’d left
Would I see the beauty
In the ashes, I never left  
A Time machine might fix a few mistakes
But where I am would never be the same

Verse 2

Let’s build a time machine
And travel up ahead to things unseen
There are a thousand things I’d show you
What if the future’s only brightened by 
the darkness of the past 
“if I changed the past, would even I know you”

And A Time machine
Might fix the broken path
that I’ve been walkin’
 And wash it clean
But it was the broken path      
that lead me to the life I  wanted
